We've had several questions off-list from potential participants to
the Outreach Program for Women  about contributing to Banshee, so I
thought I'd throw some ideas out there, and maybe other people will
come up with more ideas.
As we've recently switch to using GTK+ 3.x in git master, building
Banshee from git might be a bit tricky right now. There are
instructions at , but they probably won't work, because a lot of
the dependencies have changed. Up-to-date instruction would be nice.
In general, my suggestion for anyone looking to make a small
contribution would be to find something they want to fix or improve,
and go for it. It can be just changing a label, fixing a small issue,
Instructions on how to contribute code are at 
If you think Banshee is perfect, some people disagree and have filed
bugs. So you can look at those bugs at  and try to fix one.
Here are just a few of non-coding related ideas:
- Write some developer documentation for Hyena, the library used by Banshee
- Write some documentation on the Banshee APIs, targeted at extension
- Test Banshee with as much media players devices as possible
